GREENPOINT - With Valentine's Day coming up this week, a local blog hosted an event that offered a new twist on dating, with a "speed-friending" station at its Valentine's Market in Greenpoint. 

The entire event was hosted by the blog Greenpointers. Blogger Jennifer Galatioto says speed-friending takes some pressure off of meeting new people. Even if participants didn't walk away with a date, Galatioto explains, they still got to make friends.

The Valentine's Market also featured astrology readings and a love letter-writing station. Greenpointers says it hopes to host another event in the spring.
